This lesson is designed as the fundamental lesson for the study of finance and regional public finance. Topics that cover the knowledge and deeper thinking issues of a university student need to be aware of, such as ‘What is finance’ and ‘In modern society, what is the ideal public financial system’. In other words, in this lecture, we will reconsider and consider the role of the public sector in various real problems such as globalization, declining birthrate and aging population, budget deficit, intergovernmental financial relations, and interpersonal social services of local public finance. It is the aim. You will learn expertise in national finance, intergovernmental financial relations, and local finance, taking into account the level of students and research topics. Many international comparison methods are also used.
With the development of the internationalism, and the age problem, it is time for people to reconsider the role of the government and the public service, which is also the main focus of this lesson.
In this course, students will study about DP2.
Students will be able to understand the role of finance and analyze realistic challenges from a financial perspective. Then, you can raise awareness as a resident of the area where you live, consider local financial issues from that standpoint, and seek solutions. In addition, you can improve the logical thinking that is indispensable for writing a treatise, raise problems yourself, and learn how to build a foundation for the framework of a master's thesis.
